Galliard's Local Governing Board
Meetings of the LGB are held once each term. Attendance at each meeting, issues discussed, recommendations for decisions and expected actions are all recorded by the clerk and the minutes signed by the Chair at the next meeting. In addition, there are two days each year when the LGB members visit the school for training and development purposes.
Review of 2020/21
The Chair of the LGB resigned and moved away in January 2020. In addition, several other LGB members resigned/retired. During the year we appointed several new LGB members through Inspiring Governance and they are currently attending training and building their knowledge and understanding of the role. Harry Berman, a long-serving Governor, has stepped up to the role of Chair.
In July 2021, the Headteacher retired and a new Headteacher has been appointed from September 2021. The new Headteacher and the new LGB are now working together to build relationships and create a cohesive LGB for Galliard.
Our plans for 2021/22
As identified in the School Improvement Plan for 2021/22, our focus for the strategic development of the school will be;
1. To work with Children First Academy Trust to ensure outcomes for 2022 in reading, writing and maths are the same as, or above, the national outcomes for 2019 following the COVID -19 closures
2. To implement and embed the approach to planning and teaching the curriculum including a focus on reading across the whole school
3. To ensure pupils demonstrate positive attitudes to learning, working with parents to ensure engagement with learning both at school and at home
4. To prepare our children for future success, including having good mental and physical health
We will work with the new Headteacher and her leadership team, as they drive school improvement across all of these areas. The termly action plans and impact reports, along with our meetings and visits to the school, will help us to ensure we keep on track with these objectives.
We always welcome suggestions, feedback and ideas from parents – please contact the Chair of the Local Governing Board, Mr Berman, via the school office or email.
